T i "Bachelor" Husbands and Knowing Wives THAT famous''bridge expert who explained the crack-up of I/ his marriage- the other clay by confessing sadly, "I am n married man-with bachelor instincts," may have thought thai he^"was ;tvwning tip to a unique and deplorable trait. Un- rf oRfcunateiy, .however, he was not. * For the run-of-the-mill husband everywhere shares in that Ifttle failing 1 —and there isn't a wife alive who doesn'i kntvngit,. This, no doubt, explains the widespread feminine fli$tru'#tbf predatory blonds, and the wifely habit of demanding a- triple-edged alibi for any and all evening absences from the fireside. ? ;•:,-.:..;. ." ; •....*** 1 Tj explains :more than that. It explains the uncanny .pre- Science -with -which the little woman detects, in the 'brain of her spouse, "those errant little fancies which ever and anon ialce .shape .there. She detects them often enough, before the, spouce. himself js entirely aware of them—before they have gone farther, for instance, than a mental recognition of the fact thai little-Mary Jones .looks uncommonly nice -as she stands on the.corner waiting for the bus, with the wind whip- tpiiMr 'her skirts. * Making 'detected -them, she immediately files-an accu- •saigon—laving 'her better half with that peculiar feeling of baffled indignation which an accused man feels when he knSws that he is innocent but knows also that the innocence is. not exactly of-his own contriving. He usually mutters dumbly, •about-woman's hituition, not understanding that shehas simply* aotfed ion ithe ancient truth—that man's roving eye op- •eraies faidependeTTtly of : his will. ; An^.'^here is lyhere another score must be put down to. •thellittle votnari's credit; -for she knows (without being told) \ that wHile Tnibby does "have an incurably footloose nature, it isn|t djeally his .fault and in nine cases out of ten he never actually : does; : arvything about it. * Which, of course, is what makes the whole business en- durftible L and keeps modern society on .an even keel. For these! •bachelor instincts, inborn though thev are, are after all pretty; superficial. Jji-fe holds few more truly comic sights than that of the'ordinary 'house-broke husband who. nurishing the idea thai he would -to 'be a gay blade and ^a tempestuous lover, sud-< derily .runs into alady.jwhp is perfectly willing to take him at .his', word. The haste with which he scamners back to home and; fireside, Kstening-devoutly the while to the promptings >of his betjer.nature, is something to ponder over. * * •* A LL-of .these, truths the .man himself knows only when he has'spent much time in meditation; but the woman knows' them from the beginning, without even bothering to formulate her knowledge. She knows, that is, that the whole history of marriage is really nothing more than the story of woman's .long effort to 'drive a little civilization into the male of *he 'species. By and large, she has done a pretty fair i'ob at .it. j So when .she hears someone confess solemnly that he is "a Inarried (man with bachelor instincts," she can only say: "Well—so what?" Thursday, December 1C, 1937 By Olive Roberts Barton Many Gifts Children Can Make. Strike Waste W HENEVER a strike takes place and is followed by a settle-; } ment which .both side? hail as eminently satisfactory, one is forced .to-wonder why the rival leaders could not have got together in the first place and saved the loss and bitterness of thei strike, • The Greyhound Bus case is an illustration. ; Some 1200 bus drivers in 16 states were affected. When the walkout began, both sides breathed forth defiance and announced that they would fiprht it out on an all-or-nothing basis. But fl federal labor conciliator got the leaders together, anc! a compromise was finally reached. Each side had to retreat a'little, and each side managed to do so gracefully; the strike ended,'and both strikers and employers hailed the terms under which it ended. 1 What a tragedy, that this compromise could not have been reached a few days earlier so that the strike itself might have 'been avoided!

Weakness, Muscle Rigidity, Tremors Typical Evi:; dences of Shaking Pal.sy is the seventh in a series in which Dr. f'ishbein discusses cause, effect and treatment of diseases of thp nervous system. (No. 398) Another strange disease of the nervous system, particularly affecting older people, U known as paralysis agi- tans 1 , or Parkinson's disease, after the man who first described the condition It also is called snaking palsy, from the character of .the symptoms. In this disease there is progressive weakness with rigidity of the muscles and a spontaneous tremor of the fingers. E)fact cause of this condition is not known, but it results in progressive changes in the cells of the nervous system and in the blood vessels going to certain portions of the brain. Sometimes this condition follows infection with epidemic encephalitis, or so-called sleeping sickneis. disease comes on slowly ; n most instances and progresses slowly. The first symptom may be a fine, rhythmical tremor of the hands and fingers with a movement like that of pill rolling. There also may be a gradual increase in the tremor and stiffness of the movements of the fingers. Next, the leg becomes involved, usually on the same side as the hand which is first affected. General rigidity of the muscles which follows causes the face to assume the appearance of a mask with a slight bending forward of the head, the trunk and the extremities. People with this condition will sit motionless for hours and will even wink much less often than normally. The facial expression is stolid. These people also fail to make any gestures in their speech. They are more likely to hold their arms stiff and not to sv/ing them when walking. When they start to walk, the legs lag behind and they break into a shuffling gait to keep from falling forward. In its very early stages, the condition may be difficult to understand. The physician has numerous scientific methods of examination by which he can determine the differences between this disease of the nerves and others. Usually paralysis agitans is slowly progressive but the patients live for many years. Cases are kwv» 'n which the disease occurred in people around -80 years of age who then lived to be 50 or 60. Everything possible must be done to Half-the fmvof -Cliristmas is getting ready for it, as everyone knows. It is lardly fair for grownups to have their mysterious secrets and plans and busting .about, while the children count endless days and wish it were time for Ssjnta to come.

Not he dull old stuff we used to put be- lind washstands and on kitchen tables, nit the gay heartsome material that comes today in every color combina- ion under the sun. Oil Cloth Table Mats Perhaps Jeanie wants to give Aunt rlartha a present, and Aunt Martha's reakfast room is blue and white. Get feanie a yard of oilcloth with almost any design you want, and show the ittle girl how to cut out circles, by placing a large plate on the wrong ide and going around it with a pencil. ?hese mats can be scalloped, or "pink- d" or saw-eded, and behold—it's a set of breakfast mats that even fastidious Aunt Martha will not be ashamed to use. Larger mats can be made for toast plates and bacon platters. Out of oilcloth also can be made bib sets. -One oblong for tiny Cousin Sally's trqy and another for her bib, an arc cut from the latter to fit around her neck, and taped to tie. Light-pulls are another thing that most children can make, Girls can make a chain with a crochet hook and coarse embroidered thread, finished off with a tassel made by winding thread around a playing card, cutting and tying. Boys can string beads on a heavy thread. These are particularly useful in bathrooms, where light improve the general health and strength. Massage and suitable baths help to keep the skin and the muscles in order. In order to diminish the rigidity of the muscles, various types of massage and also the electric current are useful. The doctor also may prescribe drugs to diminish restlessness and tremors. NEXT: Chorea, or St. Vitus dance. fixtures should never !be touched with wet hands. •.

The new -enamels dry quickly and flowerpots,' cans, boxes and even cartons can'.be made'into attractive ornaments' for sun-porches.^ Add a design of stencil work, or a pasted picture, brushed over with clear shellac, and you'll have all kinds of presents.

Any kind of bag can be made from gay leftovers. "Prints are best for Christmas, or anything with color. There are shoe bags, broom bags, laundry bags and so on. Just pieces of material cut long and folded over and sewed. A casing at the top for drawstrings is necessary. There are also the "stocking" toys for little folk. Cut off foot, sew at top, invert, stuff with cotton, and sew shut. Then use your imagination, and show the children how to make cats, dolls or rabbits, by cleverly tying in the right places, painting faces, braiding tails or sewing on "arms," as the "subject" requires.

New to Baugh CHICAGO — When Sammy Baugh, Washington Red Skins' brilliant forward passer, played against the Cleveland Rams in Cleveland recently, he saw snow for the first time in his life. Britain, the limitations of modern science, the perfectibility of man, and the things that are apt to happen when an aged married couple is unexpectedly rejuvenated. Mr. Shiel seems to have gone tipsy on some wine from Arcturus—at the nearest. His imagination bounds off to the farthest galaxies, leads him to confect a plot such as H. G. Wells at his wildest could only blink at, and gives him a surging, sprakling literary style that is uncommonly effective. It is impossible to synopsi/.e his book in Ipss than half a column, but here is a hint as to its general tenor. Magical beings from some ultra-remote star visit the earth one night, carry off an aged scientist, feed him a liquid that restores him to the age of 25, and then brings him back to earth aguin. There is no holding the old gentleman after that; he goes wenching and rollicking about, starts a streamlined dicuUor movement, summons a cosmic storm from heaven to confound a kiver-to- kiver evangelist—and winds up by falling madly in love with his own wife, who has managed to get a swig of his rejuvenating elixir herself. Yet "The Young Men Are Coming" is far more than a mere fantasy. It takes in man, the earth, the solar system, the entire universe. It offers fascinating new conceptions of time, of space, of inert matter, of life itself. Its horizons are boundless, and its sweep is overwhelming. You may not like it quite as well as I did—though I hope you will—but, even if you dislike it intensely, you will find it a prodigiously stimulating book.

P. Schulbcrg. Five years ago Schulbcrg .saw Arnold on the stage of a local theater in n play called "Whistling in the Dark." There were not many good character actors around the screen colony then, and the producer thought he'd like to have one. Arnold had been getting $3f>0 a week, and sometimes less, so he was pleased when Schulberg offered $750. For quite a while .nothing was found for the actor to ilo. Other companies weren't interested, and Schulberg.had no role.s for him. Friends of the executive told him he was a fool for continuing to carry the actor. But, work or no work, Arnold got his $750.

This time, Arnold's friends urged him to bolt the contract; they said there was no sense in him working to' make some other guy rich. Arnold told them not to worry—he was d</ng all rgiht. Today, along with Basil Hathbone and perhaps Jean Hersholt, Arnold is in the top bracket of character stars, and never gets less than $5000 a week. Impact On one of the sets the other day I was mystified when a young stock actress whom I'd never met, or even seen before, pranced over and said, "Say—ah—George, who are the other pact girls?" "Pact girls?" "Sure. You know—the four of us who were working in a Broadway chorus, and on the night the show closed we pnlsy-wnLsies got together in the dressing room nnrl made a solemn vow that we would all be together again, in the same studio and with contracts, and here we are. Whew! "Anyway, that's the story the publicity department put out, although I understand it's a very old gag, nnd we are supposed to play up to it, but there are so many girls working in this pic-, ture and I've forgotten which ones I'm supposed to have made the pact with, on account uf I really don't know anv of them." .She stopped tnen and looked at me closely, and her face began to register consternation. "Sa-a-ay—you're not that George Somebody who works in the publicity department! I thought you were! You're not a columnist, are you? You are! Ohmygod, what have I done!"

CHAPTER I people trying to describe Linda Benton often said that she was "different." They meant in part, no doubt, that she was made with a delicate fineness that suggested exquisite workmanship; in part that she had soft rings of dark brown hair, beautifully set darkbrown eyes like those of a sweet-tempered, rather serious child, and an elusive quirk of a smile. But they meant, too, that there was about her a baffling simplicity and directness, together with a gracious dignity that somehow set htr apart from other girls of her age. Perhaps this was because she hud been educated abroad, entirely by tutors, under the close supervision of an aunt, who, rather than Linda's own mother, had been made her guardian at her father's death. Sometimes Linda had wished that she might t'o to school like other girls. She did not know that every phase of her life had been ordered to eradicate from her character all inherited likeness to the beautiful, tempestuous, peasant mother whose sensational doings, on the stage und off, had made headlines for years; and to shield her from the scandalous repercussions of that mother's tragic death. It was not until the day Linda came oi age that ihe understood she was penniless. Although 5he knew little of her father's resources, she had ulways supposed she would have plenty. When she learned the truth, she determined with a steely purpose hard to reconcile with hur dainty, rather gentle loveliness, that she could not be dependent any longer ufxjn those who hud kept her from her mother. It was then that she began to understand that her carefully planned schooling—with its music, dancing, riding, languages, and smattering of art and literature—had left her pitifully unequipped to cope with life u» she found U in th-j 20th century. * • » It was old Mr. Meredith, her father's attorney, \vl:u suggefted what seemed an immediate solution to her problem. A client of his, an elderly lady, slightly crippled and much alone, needed .•! companion a/id secretary. "She insisted," Mr. Meredith said "that I must not send anyone who did not have what ;;he calUd 'the education and voice of a gentlewoman.' 1 thought of you at once, my ik-ar . . . "I gave her your complete history, of course," Mr. Meredith was going on. "Miranda Tmit is i. great stickler for family traditions. And of course Ooeffrey Benton's daughter would be welcome anywhere." "Thank you," said Linda, sitting very straight and pale and young. "I will go if she wants me." When Linda arrived one evening at the little town of Nordhof, she was met at the depot by a colored chauffeur who told her Mrs. Trent bud sent him. Nordhof was u typical old-fashioned county •><.at, which centered about a staid little grassy I-.irk enshrining u central monument and four cannon, uncl dotted with beds of cannas and geraniums. About the park clustered the courthouse, two churches, and some of the business houses of the town. From it a broad, tree-arched avenue led on between rows of ancient brick dwellings with fanlights, and stoops neatly toeing the sidewalk; and on past more pretentious looking homes with spacious grounds surrounded by walls or wrought iron fences. The lust and most impressive of these was "Trent Hull."
